Hi all,

I have done a search but haven't found anything useful yet so I'm hoping someone here can help.
I have just bought a new Indivision ECS for my Amiga 500 Plus and everything works except that I have black lines flashing randomly on the screen and artifacts popping up here and there. The card has 1.01 firmware. I have tried the Indy without my IDE68K installed and same problem occurs.

There is a thread in the Amigakit section about some timing issue with A500+ IIRC, I'll try and dig out the link.

My advice is to contact your reseller :thumbsup:

Hmmm, that's no good to hear. I will contact the good people at Amikit tomorrow about it, since I bought it from there. Thanks for the link Steve.

Doubt the people at Amikit will be able to help.
However us at Amigakit can, ;).

Raise a support ticket on our system, we can then get back to you.
It is a known issue. Myself and Jens have been working over the last month to solve.

We now have a solution, but Im currently in the process of testing it.
Want to make sure its completely sorted as the PSU used also helps make problem worse.

Hiya FOL,

Lol, yes one of my typos trying to get me into trouble again ;)
I have opened a support ticket on Amigakit. I will now wait patiently and use my A4000 instead. Thanks for the help :thumbsup:
